Instead of being constrained by only being able to study sick patients, this platform projects virtual illnesses onto healthy subjects.
The Hannover Medical School has developed an augmented reality simulation app called mARble that enables med students to get as much hands-on experience as they’d like. Instead of being constrained by only being able to study sick patients, this platform projects virtual illnesses onto healthy subjects.
The practice of bedside teaching for medical students is being used less and less as it can compromise diagnosis and treatment. This means students are getting less practical experience, which is crucial when taking the step from intern to surgeon.
Demonstrated at this year’s CeBIT conference, mARble is a simulation app that combines text, graphics, audio and video information and also data supplied by sensors including gyroscope, accelerometer and GPS. The app also has customizable multimedia learning cards so students can create their own tests and track their progress.
Augmented reality lets students fully immerse themselves in their subject and to be in charge of their own learning process.
